Collaborating centres

Networks of WHO collaborating centres

In January 2000, the Executive Board urged the Member States to make full use of WHO collaborating centres as sources of information, services and expertise, and to strengthen their own national capacity for training, research and collaboration for health development. At the same time, it encouraged centres to develop working relations with other centres and national institutions recognized by WHO, in particular by setting up or joining collaborative networks with WHO's support.

Networks of collaborating centres have been created in many technical areas. For examples please see the following links:
